A CHARTERED financial planner at Skerritts Wealth Management has completed four years of training to become a resolution accredited specialist.

Karen McGrath, based in Hove, is the only financial adviser in Sussex with this accreditation.

She will work closely with law firms to promote non-confrontational financial solutions to family law matters, including divorce.

Karen, who is also a member of the Sussex Family Solutions group, said: “Family law matters can be emotionally demanding and sometimes complicated.

“Working with trusted lawyers and mediators means that I can offer specialist advice to ensure that financial planning outcomes are fair to both parties.

“Although I’ve already been working with family lawyers in the Brighton and Hove area, to achieve this accreditation that’s endorsed by resolution is something I’m very proud of.”

Richard Skerritt, managing director of Skerritts Wealth Management, said: “Karen has worked extremely hard to achieve this status and her commitment to furthering her own specialist knowledge is outstanding.”

Skerritts Wealth Management is an independent family-run business with offices in Hove, Worthing and London.

It has a 50-strong team and looks after the individual and diverse needs of 27,000 clients around the UK.
